Ireland’s vitalic rock scene has once again created musical alchemy in the form of No Spill Blood. A band formed from the much-loved, respected and established bands Wizards Of Firetop Mountain, Hands Up Who Wants To Die?, Elk and Magic Pockets.
The band’s shared love of Devo’s smarmy synths, Trans Am’s rhythmic soundscapes and the Melvins’ unencumbered experimentalism brought them together to create a beastly noise using just vocals, bass, synths and drums.
No Spill Blood’s debut EP Street Meat was released via Sargent House in 2012. Thereafter, the trio quickly grew from side project to a full fledged band. They hit the studio in early 2014 with original drummer Lar Kaye to capture the raw, eviscerating experience of its live show for Heavy Electricity. Powerhouse drummer Ror Conaty replaced Kaye shortly before NSB toured Ireland with Sargent House family band Deafheaven in August 2014, their reinvigorated live show receiving considerable praise in the process.
We were very honoured to have captured this epic performance for the Parlour.
